Center for Student Success at the School of Business

School of Business - Centers & Resources

The Stevens School of Business influence reaches far beyond the classroom.

Groundbreaking enterprises, leading-edge technology and a vast network of partnerships give School of Business students access to the skills and connections they need to succeed academically and beyond.

Whether it’s building the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, which gives students the opportunity to use the same technology utilized on Wall Street, or co-founding the Center for Research toward Advancing Financial Technologies (CRAFT), the first finance-related research center funded by the National Science Foundation, the Stevens School of Business is dedicated to ensuring its curriculum intersects with the real world.

Teaching the right concepts is just the beginning. Resources like the Center for Student Success and the Corporate Outreach and Professional Advancement Office focus on both academic success and career advancement—helping land internships, secure full-time jobs and earn promotions.
